Wookie Bowcaster: A poor man's sniper rifle?

Post by {CCP}Firestorm{Lobo} on Fri Jan 02, 2009 11:45 am

It's hard to get good with the Bowcaster, and I know VERY few people who actually use it in-game. Most are either snipers or on the other extreme end, noobs who use ONLY noob weapons like the AA and rocket launcher but...

What does everyone think of the Wookie Bowcaster (fully charged) as a poor-man's sniper rifle? True, it does not hit instantly like the Sniper does, but could it be used as one in a pinch? If not, what other uses have you come across for it?

The thing is that you can see the shot coming, so if you are good at dodging sniper shots, a bowcaster is easy as cake.
However, if you land a normal shot followed by a charged shot, you kill instantly, regardless if its a HS or not. Its a really good wep, just hard as hell to use.

walking through narrow areas it can be devastating...

especially in the ghost ship map, if there are people hiding in the crawl space you just have to fire a few shots in and your pretty guaranteed to hit something.

deadly will redirect you to me on the Bowcaster, he knows now not to underestimate me with that weapon again. This all happened when he wanted to play me+Delta66 against him. He almost won by 1 point. i have the screenshot of that match also.

But yes to anyone that wishes Wookie bowcaster training, id be the person to find since i use it daily, for it helps with my sniper training.

Seriously if anyone wants training, hit me up and ill be more then glad to teach how to use it properly. Razz Razz Razz Razz

Also 1 more point on for what twin said, and its all true. You also need to Figure out timing, when the exact moment you think that the enemy will be there. Its hard to time with the bowcaster, even i still have trouble with timing myself.

Sniping is not that hard when they dont see you. Garden for instance, i just aiw ahead of the target, fire a shot, fire a charged shot and thats it, you just see a corpse flying backwards, then you get sniped xD

Well one that helps me hen I play bowcaster Is I get close. It is easier to hit then far away because they dont have the same time to dodge.

Try that vs me...No matter how good you are at dodging, a blaster rate of fire vs a bowcaster is a way uneaven fight.
